Vi tok ett av de rimeligste rommene, likevel var det digert! Etter to måneder med backpackingliv var det godt å kunne skjemme seg bort litt. God frokost, treningsrom og avslappa stemning.

That afternoon we boarded a bus to Thakek, a town further south. It was a strange journey which included "lunch". When lunch arrived we thought it was ...
This was the easiest border crossing so far. It's about 100 kms or so north of Stung Treng and there is no town there, just the border crossing so it was very quiet. It was straight forward to get Tilly and ourselves out of Thailand and then into Laos. In between the borders Tilly had her wheels sprayed ($2) and our rego details recorded in an exercise book ($1). Not sure whether this was some local money making scam but for $3 it ...
... that we could leave our luggage at the office, the man told us we would need to walk in the morning. We packed just a daypack with a few essentials and left our luggage with them. Our introduction to our tour started as a lot of things do in Laos, reasonably unfriendly and un hospitable and with little communication. We knew there were only four of us on the two day tour and we sat in the office waiting for what, we were not sure. There were already four of us there and the bus ...
